We stayed at this hotel in mid-January having arranged a holiday through Thomsons and were delighted with our choice. Our first time in Madeira and the hotel was ideally placed to the western edge of Funchal. The hotel operates a courtesy coach service to Funchal and back running at approx 45 minute intervals although not in the evenings. It is however only a 30 minute brisk walk from the hotel into Funchal and perhaps a little longer on return as this is uphill.
As a suite hotel the rooms are excellently equipped with a small kitchenette including microwave, 2 plate cooker and fridge together with all necessary crockery, utensils etc. Beds are extremely comfortable, bathroom is on small side but adequate and there is a good sea facing balcony with table and chairs. You have access to a number of restaurants in the hotel complex and the Italian is particularly recommended. Both indoor and outdoor pools together with a range of other activities and some good evening entertainment. An excellent additional touch was a bottle of sparkling wine delivered to our room on the day of a birthday by the hotel.
The gardens of the hotel complex are a delight and very well kept.
Thoroughly recommended and we will not hesitate to use the hotel if we return to Madeira.
